I was then asked to sign one document (NDA disclosure) and then I was contacted by the head recruiter Michael Woolcott who was going to walk me through the 1 month of case studies that I would have to read, study, and then be tested on, before I was offered an in person interview as long as I did well on the exams. No money was ever asked of me but in return for the 1 month of case studies, I would be compensated as much as $5,200 for my time. Michael and I had continuous conversations about my progress and it looked as if I would be eligible for the in person interview, week long training, and then a guaranteed letter of employment. As the final study was completed, I was to hear back within a week, and then when I didn’t I reached out multiple times by email to Michael, his assistant, and Melanie (see above) with no avail and then I reached out by Phone wit no success. Their website has since been taken down, and no contact info is listed on the internet. They informed me that they filed for status in 2018 to operate in New York and that they were filing the necessary paperwork with the SEC to eventually go public in 2020. They have lied and falsified documentation and this needs to be handled immediately. They claim to be out of Zurich and on two occasions, someone from their so called HR department in Zurich called me with a funny Non Swiss accent to speak. The number registered as Zurich.
